Enterprise-C Stories

I recently saw Yesterday's Enterprise for the first time and since I have been reading the Stargazer series from the same era, I was wondering if there were any other novels besides Well of Souls that tells the stories of the Enterprise-C and its crew where they are main characters instead of a 1-line/paragraph 'guest appearance'?

Aside from Well of Souls, the only other thing to focus solely on the Enterprise C is a short story in the Enterprise Logs anthology from several years back.

"Hour of Fire" in Star Trek: Enterprise Logs, and Vulcan's Heart.

Not literary Trek but good storytelling anway: The Enterprise-C is part of a mission in Star Trek Online. Therein the player encounters she ship in the war timeline again, for the ship ended up there after the events of Yesterday's Enterprise instead of returning to the Romulan battle. Denise Crosby reprises her role as Tasha Yar (alternate) with voiceover.

Do they play a role in The Art of The Impossible? I haven't read it since it first came out, but I swear they're in there somewhere.

^ Rachel Garrett is in that book, but none of the rest of the Ent-C crew are, IIRC.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

There was to have been a Garrett story from Robert Greenberger, for one of the IDW comic mini-series, but it was suddenly cancelled. That installment, not the whole mini-series.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

There is a chapter in Vulcan's Heart about the battle of Nerendra III, and a little bit of it's aftermath is glimpsed too (Tasha among survivors on Romulus, IIRC). But it's a bit of a semi-random fanwanky detour from the novel's main plot.

Looks like the Enterprise-C is a bit underrepresented in Trek lore.

So is the E-B. Let's see, the B is in Generations, The Captain's Daughter, Engines of Destiny, "Shakedown," Serpents Among the Ruins, "Iron and Sacrifice," and IDW's Spock: Reflections and Captain's Log miniseries. The C is in "Yesterday's Enterprise," "Hour of Fire," Well of Souls, and Vulcan's Heart, and a log entry from an E-C officer is one of the interludes in A Singular Destiny (between chapters 13 & 14).

Okay, I guess the C has been featured less than the B.

I'm not very familiar with the ST:Online timeline, but if the Ent-C ended up in in the Online's future-war instead of returning to the 2344 Narendra 3 battle, how did the Federation escape that ongoing war of attrition with the Klingons?

All things being equal, the C showing up in ST:Online's time would be completely outclassed, as it would be generations behind in technology, shields, and weaponry. Not sure what that would accomplish. Not a dig against the people involved with ST:Online, mind you, but an observation relating Ambassador-class capabilities to those of the Online ships.

C's temporary captain, Richard Castillo, was also found ruminating in one of the Strange New Worlds (SNW 3, I believe) anthologies about the Narendra 3 battle.

Question:are the SNWs considered to be part of the greater continuity that the authors can take cues from (similar to how you guys and gals tend to work together to more consistently carry over elements from books written by different authors *), though the aforementioned SNW story appears to disregard established canon regarding that battle?

* I'm thinking about how you and David Mack cooperated in describing the workings of the transphasic torpedo in GTTS and Destiny to make it consistent for readers of both

I didn't count that because the ship itself didn't appear.

As with most things in TrekLit, there's no overarching rule about the continuity. The various SNW stories were certainly not in continuity with each other; there were a couple of contradictory Borg origins, several contradictory sequels to "City on the Edge of Forever" and "A Piece of the Action," two different versions of Nog's Kobayashi Maru test (never mind that the KM is for command-track seniors so Nog should never have taken it at all), etc. And a number of the stories contradicted previous novels, though a few did draw on the novel continuity.

However, a few individual SNW stories have been memorable enough that novelists have chosen to reference them. One of Greg Cox's Gary Seven novels referenced Dayton Ward's Gary/Roberta story in SNW III. I drew on Bill Leisner's DTI story from SNW II in my DTI novels. The name for Sarek's mother established in an SNW story was referenced in one of the post-finale ENT novels. The Scotty-focus SCE novella "The Future Begins" references a couple of SNW stories about Scotty.

^ Thanks for the details, Christopher; I appreciate them. Makes me realize what a gigantic sandbox Trek is to have so many authors playing in it.

Re: Enterprise-C Stories

I always wish for more Ent-C stories (or for that matter, ENT-B stories too). I think that is a great Era to cover (and yep the Lost Era stories (Serpents, Art of Impossible, & Well of Souls) I really liked.

Guess that there are a lot of characters who many only have a line or two in the films/show, but can really be fleshed out in the book.

I suppose its in the execution I suppose, since I'm really Titan fan (it still irks me that IDIC is thrusted down my throat instead of it being natural in the book), but I a big time Vanguard fan, yeah, both of the those series have different themes, I just like how Vanguard characters were fleshed out more (or written) than the Titan crew.

I'd like Ent-C stories written in the same vein as the way Vanguard was.
